A member of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, Dave graduated as a Bachelor of Land Economy from the University of Aberdeen.

With a father from Lewis and a mother from Lochcarron, Dave has strong links to the Highlands and Islands and has travelled and worked extensively across the region.

On joining HIE, he said:

“I am delighted to be joining HIE at a very exciting time for the region and for the agency. Our experienced property and infrastructure team is involved in an incredibly varied and interesting portfolio of projects across the Highlands and Islands.

“I will be working closely with our area teams to deliver this crucial element of economic and community development, something I will find both satisfying and rewarding.”

Carroll Buxton, HIE’s regional development director, added:

“HIE has a diverse property portfolio and is involved in a wide range of infrastructure projects across the region.
